It never fails if I am watching television or if I am out at an event, there is a woman ripping another woman apart with words. Where does all this catfight come from? This is not any easy question to answer nor is there probably one answer.

One of the things that I love about the Girl Friends Get Together events is how fabulous the women are! The women are genuine in the fact that they come out to be inspired, motivated, and to connect with other women.

There are simple things that you can incorporate into your daily routine that support another woman. Here are a few…

1) Don't hate the player, hate the game. Women tend to get very competitive in looks, love, and career. Stop the "catfight". Focusing on your goal will get you further, than focusing hostility on another woman who you deem as competition. Maybe just maybe, it is the situation that you are angry with and not the person.

2) Give at least 3 women words of encouragement each day. By doing this you will make someone's day. Paying it forward has a high value of return.

3) Refer women in your network to each other. When someone calls you for a referral, start with the names of women in your network. When you refer fabulous women to each other, you also come out shining! Build the "old girls network!" A great way to start is coming to a Girl Friend Get Together event.

4) Keep it real. Stop the gossip and the back stabbing. Also, do not burn bridges. One of the best quotes I have heard is "do not step on someone else's toes; you never know if they will be connected to the ass you have to kiss tomorrow". Be real by any means necessary, even if you do not agree.

Until next time…
